NT Live: One Man Two Guvnors

One Man, Two Guvnors (Encore)

By Richard Bean
Based on The Servant of Two Masters by Carlo Goldoni, with songs by Grant Olding

Featuring a Tony Award-winning performance from host of the The Late Late Show, James Corden, the hilarious West End and Broadway hit One Man, Two Guvnors returns to cinemas to mark National Theatre Live’s 10th birthday.

Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée’s dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who’s been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers.

Holed up at The Cricketers’ Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart.  Simple.

Fleabag: Encore (15)

Extra performance - Sun 29 Sept at 7.30pm

The Fleabag screening on the 12 Sept has sold out. To accommodate those disappointed fans we will be screening an Encore performance on the 29 Sept.


See the hilarious, award-winning, one-woman show that inspired the BBC’s hit TV series Fleabag, broadcast live to cinemas from London’s West End.

Written and performed by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag, Killing Eve) and directed by Vicky Jones, Fleabag is a rip-roaring look at some sort of woman living her sort of life.

Fleabag may seem oversexed, emotionally unfiltered and self-obsessed, but that's just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose.

Playing to sold-out audiences in New York and London, don’t miss your chance to see this ‘legitimately hilarious show’ (New Yorker), screened 'as live'.

The Souvenir (15)

Dir: Joanna Hogg, UK, 2019, 120 mins

Honor Swinton Byrne, Tom Burke, Tilda Swinton


Julie, a film school student, meets sophisticated but troubled Anthony at a dinner party and enters into a turbulent romance with him despite her mother's warnings. Based on the director's own experiences as a film student in London during the 1980s, this is an honest portrait of a young artist battling with her ambitions, limitations and desires.

Joanna Hogg builds on previous works Archipelago and Exhibition to emerge as one of the most singular visions working today in British filmmaking. Winner of the Sundance 2019 World Cinema Dramatic prize, The Souvenir truly is a film that stays with you, fixating in the mind long after the last utterly gorgeous frame.

On the evening of Sat 12 Oct we are delighted to welcome Ipswich based Rebecca Gillies who worked as Set Dresser on the film to talk about her role and give an insight into this important but under-appreciated craft.


"The Souvenir feels like the only film in the world that matters" - Time Out

"Hogg has found a contemporary English response to the rhetoric of Antonioni or Visconti"

- The Guardian

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play.
